These yummy cookies made with almond flour are gluten free. Vanilla extract is made with distilled alcohol so no worries if gluten is a concern!
They are pretty nutritious but don't go crazy and eat the whole dozen! They do stack up much better than many "breakfast bars" for a real food boost!
1 Tbsp Chia seed
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 Tbsp Mangosteen powder
1 Tbsp brewer's yeast
After creaming wet ingredients and eggs add the dry mixture and stir in :
1/2 cup oats,
1 1/2 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips (add white chocolate or yogurt chips if you like),
1 1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice : I use walnuts, almonds, pistachio, cashews, Macadamia nuts,
(and pecans if I have some on hand)
2 Tbsp chopped pumpkin seeds
These are a great snack to throw in your dance bag when you need a sweet treat that also packs a good punch of nutrition. I use one cup of sugar (1/2 brown) which gives a good texture without making them too sweet but you can add more if you want a sweeter cookie! I've included a few optional ingredients if you have them on hand. The brewer's yeast does not affect the flavor but adds B vitamins. I use the optional ingredients in smoothies and baked goods for added nutrients and healthy fats so I always have them at hand!
Bake on cookie sheets for 8 to 11 minutes at 350 in a preheated oven.
Cool on a cooling rack allowing cookies to cool briefly on the sheet first so they firm up nicely!
